Nikaah against family
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved Sister in Islam, provided all the obligatory conditions of an Islamic Nikaah (like proposal and acceptance, determination of mehr, availability of at least two witnesses, consent of the bride and her guardian, etc.) were met at the time of your marriage; you will be considered legally married to your husband in the Sight of Shariah Law and in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Regardless of whether the nikaah-naama or documentation are destroyed or unavailable, you will be considered legally wed to your husband in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah; and it would be absolutely illegal and unlawful for you or your parents to arrange another marriage for you unless your husband first pronounces divorce upon you.
Your Question: in this circumstance wat shall i do??
Beloved Sister in Islam, with absolute humility, wisdom and extreme patience try to instill the fear of Allah into your mother and guardians and with extreme politeness try to convince them to permit you to live your life with your legal and lawful husband.
If your parents or guardians consented to your marriage at the time of nikaah in front of witnesses, they now have absolutely no right to withhold you from living with your lawful husband against your will; if they do so they will be held severely accountable for their injustice not only in any Shariah Court in this world, but also in the Majestic Presence of the Lord Most High in the Hereafter.
If after your best efforts you are still unable to
convince your parents to permit you to go live your life with your lawfully
wedded husband, you are well within your rights to take your case to a
Beloved Sister, the nikaah-naama or official documentation of nikaah is a non-issue; for the Shariah Judge will call upon those who witnessed the nikaah to give their evidence that the nikaah did indeed take place.and those witnesses would more than suffice to prove your marriage to your husband in any Shariah Court of the world.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
